HEXAGRAM 28 – Ta Kuo – Preponderance of the Great

Above    TUI    THE JOUYOUS, LAKE

Below    SUN    THE GENTLE, WIND, WOOD

This hexagram consists of

  • four strong lines inside and
  • two weak lines outside.
  1. When
  • the strong are outside and
  • the weak inside,
    • all is well and
    • there is
      • nothing out of balance,
      • nothing extraordinary in the situation.
  1. Here, however, the opposite is the case.
  • The hexagram represents a beam that is
    • thick and heavy in the middle but
    • too weak at the ends.
      • This is a condition that cannot last;
      • it must be changed, must pass, or misfortune will result.

THE JUDGMENT

PREPONDERANCE OF THE GREAT.

The ridgepole sags to the breaking point.

It furthers one to have somewhere to go.

Success.

The weight of the great is excessive.

The load is too heavy for the strength of the supports.

The ridgepole, on which the whole roof rests, sags to the breaking point,

because its supporting ends are too weak for the load they bear.

It is an exceptional time and situation;

therefore

extraordinary measures are demanded.

It is necessary

  • to find a way of transition as quickly as possible, and
  • to take action.

This promises success.

For although the strong element is in excess,

it is in the middle, that is, at the center of gravity, so that

a revolution is not to be feared.

Nothing is to be achieved by forcible measures.

The problem must be solved by

gentle penetration to the meaning of the situation

(as is suggested by the attribute of the inner trigram, Sun);

then

the change-over to other conditions will be successful.

It demands real superiority;

therefore

the time when the great preponderates is a momentous time.

THE IMAGE

The lake rises above the trees:

The image Of PREPONDERANCE OF THE GREAT.

Thus the superior man,

  • when he stands alone, Is unconcerned, And
  • if he has to renounce the world, He is undaunted.
  • Extraordinary times when the great preponderates are like
  • flood times when the lake rises over the treetops.

But such conditions are temporary.

The two trigrams indicate the attitude proper to such exceptional times:

  • the symbol of the trigram Sun is the tree,
    • which stands firm even though it stands alone, and
  • the attribute of Tui is joyousness,
    • which remains undaunted even if it must renounce the world.
